[802.3_B10K] Terminology Kickoff


As discussed on this week's ad hoc call, there is a need for us to spend
some time on terminology related to the proposed PHY over DWDM network, .
Establishing a common reference point for various terms will enable
effective discussions in our group and the industry.  


To that end - I am kicking off this thread to try and identify the terms
that we feel need defined related to this topic.  This will also serve as
input into a potential liaison to the ITU-T, where we will request their
respective definitions of these terms.


Terms identified so far include the following  (alphabetical order)

*	Channel
*	In-line amplification
*	Lambda
*	Lane
*	Link
*	Point-to-point link 
*	Signal
